Albeit a little bit late, we did have the planned telcon yesterday.  Attendees Terry Norbraten, Len Daly, Nick Polys, Don Brutzman.  Regrets Vince Marchetti (phone line fumble on my part).

Details captured in another update to the wiki page:


Summary of progress:

We will use Subversion on SourceForge (rather than git on GitHub) in order to best support recovery and reintegration of separated Xj3D builds.

We expect to maximize use of SourceForge capabilities for community support.  This includes mailing lists and pushing forward any active/unfinished bug reports from old versions.

Basic strategy: we are evolving by re-versioning, not re-naming Xj3D.

We will simply mirror the current xj3d.org repository, as version 2.0, and maintain full backwards compatibility by integrating any forthcoming changes there.

Conclusion: mirroring the full xj3d.org site on SourceForge Xj3D project is our planned approach to meet group goals for unveiling and evangelizing Xj3D community opportunities at Web3D 2014 Conference and SIGGRAPH 2014.

Time line.  Following all comments from Xj3D source community and X3D working group, we plan to begin mirroring on SourceForge during the week of 7 July 2014.

Coincidental tech progress:  Terry added support for Arc2D node.  Looks good.  8)

Thanks for all feedback, it continues to be totally helpful.  Have fun with Xj3D!

all the best, Don
